Shoulder Stretches: Pecs
Tight pectoral muscles often accompany our current lifestyle postures. If you sit at a desk, you probably have tight pecs. Today's exercise shows you how to stretch this muscle simply and gently. This information comes from the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative in partnership with the Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation.
1. Sit or stand with your affected arm stretched out behind you against a wall or doorframe.
2. Do your best to keep your shoulders square and aligned with eachother.
3. Hold the stretch fro 20-30 seconds and repeat 3-5x/day.
4. TIP: you can move the hand up or down with each rep to stretch all the different parts of the pec muscle.
